Ford’s Wide-Open Wednesdays Free Admission Ends Nov. 19 at
National Cowboy Museum
OKLAHOMA CITY—The Oklahoma Ford Dealers free admission promotion, Wide-Open Wednesdays, at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum ends Nov. 19. The special promotion, now in its 11th year, offers the public free admission on 16 consecutive Wednesdays that kicked off Aug. 6.
“Your Oklahoma Ford Dealers want you to know there is still time to celebrate the best of the West, and it won’t cost a thing,” said Kyle McQuaid, spokesman for Ford. “The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is a national treasure of American history right here in Oklahoma, and we are pleased to partner with the Museum to make this attraction available to more people across the state.”
McQuaid added, “This is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of this Museum and learn about our American character through the permanent galleries.”
Temporary exhibits offered during the Wide-Open Wednesdays promotion include “Coyote Songs – Desperado Dreams: the Art of Robby McMurtry,” “Making Change,” and the art of the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association and Cowboy Artists of America.
